Annoying typing bug on the Pro
Does anyone know how to fix this annoying little bug:
Whenever I type a dollar sign, the symbol is placed against the end of the preceding word, not to the beginning of the new one. For instance:
"it is $10" always comes out as "it is$ 10"
I've tried everything to stop that from happening, but nothing shy of typing it, then going back to delete it gets rid of that. Of course spacing twice places a period, so that doesn't help.

Interesting bug....just confirmed it on my Pro as well. I tested with a number of other special characters and the following all do the same strange formatting of appending the character to the preceding word:
. , $ * / ! & ~ @ % ? +
I can understand some of them (like a period, comma, exclamation point and question mark), but not the others. I never noticed this before, now I'm going to be obsessed with finding a solution......

As a side note. We could type "I paid_$40.00 for that item". That at least separates the $ from the word in front of the $ sign.

He's right! Woot! They also fixed this annoying "doubling up" bug that would type out the first letter of an entry twice. All the typing bugs seem to be gone. Its nice but a shame that a simple thing like this couldn't have been fixed with a quick patch of some sort 6 months ago.
